Has anyone heard about the Tartakower defence?
I remember that Karpov, Nigel Short even Kasparov and Fischer use to play the Tartakower and they got excellent results with it. What happened after that? Isn't the Tartakower good anymore? Was it ref...

I'm thinking of branching from the Tarrasch--I've got a lot of draws from higher rated players, but I don't feel like I am getting any real winning chances from it.
The Semi-slav and Nimzo seem t...

Interesting Lasker's Defence Analysis
I figured I'd share this with any of you who haven't seen it; it looks like a pretty good web article on a Lasker's Defence based repertoire.  It's made me interested enough to want to give it a try!<...

Chess Explained : The Queen's Gambit Declined
By Rizzitano
What do you think of this book ?
Does it deal adequately with Ragozin and Vienna variation ?
Would you recommend it on these lines ?

Hi everyone,
I'm wondering why the venerable QGD, often referred to as rock solid, shows such dismal statistics for black in nearly every line.  Often, black doesn't even win 15% of the games and...

Tartakower against 5. Bf4?
